YOU GUYS ARE HAVING THE CROTTY INSTITUTE CHAMPIONSHIPS ON SATURDAY. TELL ME WHAT THAT’S ALL ABOUT. FOR HAVING OUR FIFTH ANNUAL CARDIO CHAMPIONSHIP AT THE LAKEFIELD MIDDLE SCHOOL. IT WILL BE OUR FIFTH ANNUAL. IT’S A RIGID TOURNAMENT SO IT’S TROUBLE RATED. WILL HAVE PEOPLE COME FROM ALL OVER TEXAS TO EARN REWARDS TO GO TO THE STATE CHAMPIONSHIP IN DECEMBER. I’M HERE WITH TIM McGRAW HE’S WON THE STATE CHAMPIONSHIP LAST YEAR. HE’S NUMBER ONE ALONG WITH MYSELF. WE HAD 5 COMPETITORS FROM ALL SCHOOLS ALONE THAT WON THE STATE CHAMPIONSHIP LAST YEAR. FORGETTING POINTS TO GO TO THE STATE CHAMPIONSHIP AGAIN. Amanda: HOW COOL IS IT TO HAVE THE STATE CHAMPION IN SAN ANGELO? LIKE WE SAID WE’VE BEEN DOING IT FOR THE LAST 5 YEARS. THERE ARE NO OTHER SCHOOLS DOING IT. WE HAVE A LOT OF FOOTBALL STUFF HERE AND SOCCER SO WE TRY TO ADD CROTTY OUT TO THE COMMUNITY ALSO. Amanda: WHICH IS IMPORTANT. ALL THE SPORTS ARE GREAT BUT YOU ALSO HAVE TO REMEMBER THAT THERE ARE KIDS MAY BE INTERESTED IN SOMETHING ELSE I CROTTY WHICH IS VERY DIFFERENT. I DON’T THINK I MET A LOT OF PEOPLE GROWING UP THAT WERE INTO KARATE. THAT’S VERY NEAT. HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN INVOLVED? I’VE BEEN INVOLVED WITH CROTTY FOR 42 YEARS. I’VE BEEN TEACHING FOR OVER 25 YEARS. WE TEACH ALL AGES FROM 5-YEAR-OLDS TO THREES ALL THE WAY OUT. Amanda: WHAT ABOUT YOU TIM? I’VE BEEN IN IT FOR A COUPLE YEARS NOW. Amanda: THAT’S AWESOME. LET’S TALK MORE ABOUT SATURDAY AND HOW IT WILL ROLL. WHAT’S A RUNDOWN? HOW WILLIT LOOK THAT DAY? WE HAVE PEOPLE ALL OVER THE STATE OF TEXAS COMING. WE’LL START WITH THE BLACK BELTS AND YOU’LL SEE WEAPONS AND SEE FIGHTING. MOST OF THE EXCITING PART IS THE KIDS GOING OUT THERE AND DO THEIR FORMS OF THEIR PARTY. YOU SEE THE LITTLE KIDS YOU SEE THEM TRANSFORM THE FIGHTING POSITION AND IS READY TO FIGHT. IT’S PRETTY COOL. WAS THE YOUNGEST AGE YOU COULD GET STARTED? WE START THEM AT 3 YEARS OLD. Amanda: HOW LITTLE TINY. THAT’S OKAY. IS IT COOL TO SEE THEM GROW FROM THIS LITTLE TODDLER THAT’S LEARNING HOW TO CONTROL THE MOVEMENTS TO A BLACK BELT? OH YES IT IS. GOOD TO SEE THE KIDS ESPECIALLY WHEN THEY STAND CROTTY HOW THEY TRANSFER FROM 5 YEARS OLD TO AN ADULT HOOD. CROTTY IS AN EXCITING NEW THING. YOU HAVE TO BE PREPARED TO GO TO THE TRAINING AND GO THROUGH THE PROMOTION GO TO TOURNAMENTS ALL KINDS OF THINGS THAT’S INVOLVED IN IT. Amanda: THERE MUST BE A LOT OF DISCIPLINE INVOLVED AS WELL. TIM TELL ME WHAT YOU’RE EXPECTING TO HAPPEN THIS WEEKEND? I’M EXPECTING TO HOPEFULLY WIN AGAIN. I MAKE IT TO THE STATE CHAMPIONSHIPS SO I CAN WIN THERE AS WELL. AS WELL AS SEE MY KIDS PARTICIPATE IN IT. MY DAUGHTER’S COMPETING AS WELL AS ONE OF MY SONS. Amanda: ARE YOU FROM HERE? YES. Amanda: THAT’S AWESOME. ANYTHING ELSE THAT’S GONNA HAPPEN CREATE CRACKS THAT’S BASICALLY WHAT IT IS. ALL PEOPLE THROUGH TEXAS WILL COME AND MAKE UP THEIR POINTS TO BE ABLE TO MAKE IT IN THE STATE CHAMPIONSHIP. WE ARE EXCITED FOR SAN ANGELO AND EVERYBODY THAT’S COMING TO SUPPORT OUR ATTORNMENT. WHERE’S THE TURN MAKE IT HAPPEN? WILL IT BE AT THE SCHOOL GYM. IT WILL BE THE LINCOLN SCHOOL GYM.
